1.56 last week. Lowest ever.


There's a term in the stock market called 'the dead cat bounce' and basically when a stock is bottoming out and there's big drop, it will 'bounce-back' before going to hell in a handbasket completely and totally. I see that here.



Also we had a 'big show' last night and that typically does make the viewership go up. The curiosity factor. So you have a 'rock bottom' bounce and a big show last night combining.

A drop from 1.56 would be complete and total disaster on top of what a 1.56 already is.



I'm gonna go with a 1.75

He bid 1.6, so I wouldn't of bid 1.601. Even I don't cock block that bad obviously.

So if they cut it down to one hour and have some quality in that hour they might be ok. The longer the show hoes the less people are tuned in.

Is there any possibility there is a lack of attention span with this era of fan akin to how people are so into instant gratification that sporting events they pay hundreds of dollars to attend like baseball, football, etc take too long and they can't stay focussed. Even though most of them are on FB updating their status most of the time anyways.


Or is it the product is so totally horrific that people can't wait to turn the channel.  I know the product is lacking and Covid-19 is not helping but is the product truly mindnumbingly awful?

I have not watched more than bits and pieces in an awfully long time but I've noticed for a long time now the first hour ratings aren't great but they aren't Kardashian ass boots awful but by hour three it beejmi, Mask, a couple of gender confused retards and Stiffler's mom who are watching.

Do they truly not care anymore. Are HHH and horseface Stephanie just waiting for Vince to stroke out hoping the network's won't pull the plug before then? It has to be more than a decade now since this product was watchable except for little blips here and there. 

People who thought the AWA was bad at the end should watch a couple of episodes of each side by side. The only thing in common was they each would have about the same number of fans.

Well you did .04 on me, so going .01 on somebody doesn't seem out of the question, does it?

Yes, it does. That's messed up. And the only reason I went.04 on you is because you've done the same on me in the past. Plus - I actually respect you and your posting abilities, so I knew the number was around 1.6-1.63. Nothing more, nothing less.

The 1.74 is bad to be honest but yes it indicates higher interest at the start (big show on Sunday night) then as the show sucks people move on


In all honesty, the 1.63 is a PPV is every bit as bad as the 1.56

Oh and three picks in after the deadline this week let's not open that can of worms going forward. Picks in before the show starts.

If my 1.0 had won and I didn't "win" because my time said 7:01 no big deal to me. I started typing well before 7 but was trying to be clever and poke fun at the abomination from the night before and I type slow especially with beer and burger in hand.

I went around looking for 'the numbers' to see if he had found them somewhere.


He was innocent. Obviously. Of course.

I have no recollection of doing that to you honestly.

I got mine in at 7:13pm Central, so 13 minutes after the show started.  Point taken, although I know we've been some lenient on that in the past.  I didn't have the show on and wasn't watching, didn't know what was happening, not sure if that 13 minutes could make a difference, but no ill intent meant on my part.   
Squared got his pick in at 9:10am the next morning, not a "full day" after the show was over, but I guess you could argue that posting after the show is unfair because you knew what was happening.
One more quick point on my pick.  Even though I picked at 7:13, I didn't cock block anyone by posting 1.600001 or any bullshit like that.  Also didn't go Price is Right $1 on my pick because I think someone was still lower than me.
Totally up to Beej, but I suggest two new rules to make this more fair:1. Picks in before 8 Eastern, 7 Central2. Picks can be no greater than the hundreth place, or two significant digits: 1.59, 1.60, 1.61, 1.62, 1.63).  Still doesn't eliminate the cock blocking at 6:59pm, but at least it still keeps it a bit more uncertain.3.  Another iteration on Rule #2 above, picks must be separated by 0.05.  So, possible picks could be 1.50, 1.55, 1.60, 1.65, etc.  What this would do would make it more advantageous to get your pick in early rather than late.  This would totally eliminate the cock-blocking.  If you wait until 6:59 to pick, then you're probably going to be shit out of luck.

Cock-blocking?

You guys are watching RAW instead of having sex?

Keep going guys. Keep jawing about 3 hours of your life you'll never get back. 10 or 12 more pages might vault this one to Classic Thread status.

I usually use the term cock blocking or cutting their balls myself. Beej is just having a bad day I think.

I dunno. It isn't horribly bad to post late because you really don't know what the numbers will be anyway.



I kinda like the 'deadline when the show starts' thing and don't mind the 8:00 cock-block as it's 'strategy'

Im not doing well this year I'll need to adjust my formula

Please don't change the posting time or the contest has no credibility anymore. If Owen Hart walks out in the opening segment, you know damn well the ratings will be different. Anything can happen in wrestling. Well, unless it's booked by Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn.

Maybe might change things at start of 2021. Maybe. 

Its supposed to be sort of a lottery and crapshoot and it pretty much is.
